News Article: What A level Subjects Should You Pick? (Hint: Think Maths!)

The Russell Group of universities has set out guidance about academic subject choices in it’s guide “Informed Choices“.

Not surprisingly, the prevailing wisdom is that maths carries a certain kudos.

A recent article in The Guardian considers this:

“A grade C in maths is pretty much essential at GCSE if you want to go to university, but the subject is also generally liked by admissions tutors at A-level. So it is well worth thinking about if you’re capable of getting a good grade.

“Certainly anyone who has ability in maths should consider it,” says Davies. “I see no problem with a combination such as English, history, maths.”

But be warned: there are many degrees where maths is essential, and if you don’t do some careful research, you might not realise it.

“Say you want to study computer science, so you take a computing at A-level. That’s fine, but you also must do maths at A-level to be considered,” Davies explains.”
